About this listing
Romantic king size bed in the Bird House bedroom, taken from the lounge settee verandah. This is the optimum of open air living in a tropical paradise.
A stunning tree house-like setting with a king size bed with a verandah overlooking the Antigua Yacht Club Marina. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom. The cottage is settled into the hillside, and the surrounding gardens are lush with fruit trees and tropical flowers. You can sit and have a cup of coffee in the mornings and feed the birds as they come and visit you on your open verandah.
In as much as we HAVE no rules, and to coin the phrase from The Burning Man in Black Rock City, Nevada "Safety Third" would be our only advice! Here at the Pineapple House property in Antigua, West Indies where we have 7 intimate tropical Villa's, we tend to encourage an intimacy between all the guests staying here which share this wonderful site. We are an international mixture of culture of the crew on all the Super Yachts and world traveler's. We appreciate responsible guests who like to enjoy on open air environment, and an open mind!
the place and the people are just awesome!
we spend 7 nights at the pineapplehouse and it was just great. the houses are open without windows. you feel like outside-which is lovely!! there is a wonderful veranda with a perfect view over english harbour. the houses are simple but made with a lot of love and many nice deco-details. the bed is realy spacious and our mattress perfect for my back! libby -the owner-was unfortunately not there but we had very nice and friendly contact with her by phone and email. she gave us many good tips and she was always reachable if necessary. neil is looking after the property and "us". he is such a nice person, he did everything to make us feeling as comfortable as possible and he did everything for our conveniences. we felt like home. this place is full off ambience and made with a lot of love! if you like the open space of these houses, then its the perfect stay in antigua-you may love it!
Thank you so much, Raymond, for your kind review...I'm so happy that Neil is there for you and looking after everything....He's been amazing and I'm so happy is part of our team there....I'm sorry I missed you too, but somehow I feel as though we have bonded, as we had such a great conversation on the phone...Love your style of music, and you still have promised me to send a link, so I can groove to your sound...And, I'm so happy you made it over to Barbuda while you were there...most people don't, so well done! It is our best kept secret....Again, thank you so much for being a part of the Pineapple House and for staying....I look forward to staying in touch....Lots of love to you and Fabienne....xxx
I've traveled this world far and wide and the Bird House is one of the most charming and magical places I've ever stayed. It is the type of place dreams are made of.
You are so lovely! I am so grateful for such a wonderful review! I can't thank you enough for sharing your holiday at The Bird House...I've enjoyed getting to know you through our correspondence, and really hope that you'll be back again...We'll stay in touch....Lots of love, Libby
My experience at the Birdhouse was absolutely amazing. Libby made the experience especially memorable. I went down to Antigua planning on proposing to my girlfriend. I explained the situation to Libby before my trip and she went above and beyond to help make it special. She helped me plan to go to a private beach, laid out a bed with pillows, conch, flowers, palms, etc to make the moment special. She even made me dinner reservations for that night and had a bottle of champagne in the room waiting for us upon our return. The birdhouse was exactly what was described in the pictures and more. The views were breathtaking from the open air bungalow overlooking English Harbour, the room was decorated beautifully and the kitchen was perfect for preparing morning breakfast. The couch and kitchen table made a great spot to relax and enjoy the view as well. Location to downtown was perfect, less than a 5 minute walk, as well as a quick 5 minute walk to Pigeon Beach. We also rented a car and there was parking right outside of the Pineapple House which was perfect. Libbys staff was truly helpful and it was a pleasure getting to know them. I would 100% recommend anyone to stay at the birdhouse or any of the villas at Pineapple house. It will be an experience you will remember forever. I would love to come back someday. Thank you again Libby and family at the Pineapple House!
Dan....You and Grace were such wonderful guests, and I can honestly say that it was an absolute PLEASURE creating your wonderful, romantic beach bed for your proposal...To say the least, you brought the romance to Antigua with you! My staff were over the moon with excitement for you both, and we'll never forget you, and we welcome you back home to your Caribbean Bird's nest in the trees over looking the harbour! Thank you, THANK you, for such a lovely review...we are all very grateful, and will think of you often...Neil, our St. Lucian grounds keeper, is asking for a photo of you both on your wedding day....We wish you the very best, and we are most grateful to have been a part of your proposal....Looking forward to seeing you again!
We had a great time at the Bird house. Libby helped us with directions and showed us to our lovely room, what a spectacular view and what a beautiful little place. Waking up was a real treat.
We really do not know where to start.....Libby, Lucky, Rum Dog and the girls created a most wonderful stay in the most relaxing well appointed cottage in the trees one could find not just on Antigua, but likely anywhere in the world. Our stay was full of wonderful chats, shared rum punches and new connections that will never be forgotten!
Thank you so very much for such a relaxed and yet fun filled stay at the Pineapple House. Truly a place where "Guests Become Family!"
Race week both in the harbour and at the Pineapple has us looking at the calendar for the next opportunity to visit new friends!
PS.....Libby and staff were an absolute pleasure to converse with from booking all the way to departure!
Chad and Stephanie...Thank you so much for choosing The Bird House for your honeymoon! We loved it when you came to visit the Main House, and shared your precious romantic time with us....The harbour was indeed "humming" with rum fueled racing sailors for the RORC Carib 600 Yacht Race, but I think that the view from up at your secluded villa must have been busy with the racing yachts coming and going...I truly enjoyed being able to spend time with you, and getting to know you....somehow, I feel that with finding that we have mutual friends outside of Antigua, we will see each other again....Lots and lots of love to you both, and we will be looking out for your return to Pineapple House....Huge hugs xxxx
We arrived a pineapple house after a somewhat complex trip to Antigua. Upon arrival all of our troubles melted away once we were greeted by Libby and Bird House.
The entire experience was amzing. Bird House met all of our expectations. The location was excellent and the view is the best anywhere. The bed is so comfortable
and the decor should be in a magazine!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was. Pineapple House is not just a place to stay but a chance to meet wonderful people from all over the world in the most warm and inviting environment. Libby and her team are true hosts. they go the extra mile to make sure you have the best possible holiday. Libby is so knowledgeable about the island she will help you find all of the best spots to visit.
We will without hesitation rerun to Pineapple House for another visit to share a rum with people that have now become true friends. Until the next time.
Our stay at Pineapple House was amazing! Upon arrival we were alerted to problems with the water pump at Bird House. After a customary welcome rum punch, Libby sent us off to the beach and suggested a fantastic restaurant so the issues could be tended to. We were offered a different room, but chose to stay at Bird House - it's seclusion and view couldn't be passed up! Everyone went out of their way to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible.
Libby's hospitality and the cast of characters also staying at Pineapple House made our holiday more special than we could have ever anticipated.
Thank you Libby and team for a truly wonderful experience.
Clare and Rob....I'll never forget the "Seized ball cock" situation with the water pump at the Bird House on your arrival!!! Thanks for being such AMAZING guests, and I truly hope you'll be back again to see us...I was blessed with you and it was an amazing group with you and Rob, Tom and Gemma, Neil, and the rest of the crew off the yachts...I had fun too...lots of love from all of us!
